THE HOUSE OF BIRDS, 1999
Mion Nakasato, Tokamachi-shi, Japan
Stainless steel and galvanised steel
400 x 200 x 1900 cm
Commisioned by: the Echigo-Tsumari Art Festival 2000, 1998
Project: Tsumari-go Art Necklace Project
Curated by: Fram Kitagawa
The project's concept is my wish to connect earth and sky trough birds as a metaphor of the Untouchable.
I liked to build a house for them as sculpture, a kind of memory of our respect and gratitude to the mountains and rivers, the trees, the clouds, the stars.
